Tell Siri who your fam­ily is

Mac Format - - IMPROVE -


Add your part­ner

The first re­la­tion­ship most peo­ple want to add is their part­ner. Hold the Home but­ton to ac­ti­vate Siri, and say some­thing like “John Ap­ple­seed is my hus­band” or “Jane Ap­ple­seed is my wife”. Note that Siri also recog­nises other re­la­tion­ships such as part­ner, fi­ancé, girl­friend or boyfriend. Siri re­quests that you con­firm you want to add the re­la­tion­ship.


Add other peo­ple

You can con­tinue adding peo­ple to Siri by telling Siri who they are. You can add your mother, fa­ther, brother, sis­ter, and even tell Siri that peo­ple are your friend, as­sis­tant or man­ager. You can even add cus­tom la­bels, such as ‘ten­nis coach’ or ‘danc­ing part­ner’, if you like. Just tell Siri who all the im­por­tant peo­ple are in your life one by one.


Check­ing re­la­tion­ships

All the in­for­ma­tion about your fam­ily is stored in your per­sonal card in Con­tacts. Tap the Con­tacts app and scroll down to find the Re­lated Names sec­tion to find all the fam­ily re­la­tion­ships. To re­move a re­la­tion­ship, tap Edit and then the red Re­move icon next to the per­son. Fi­nally, tap Delete. We find it eas­i­est to add re­la­tion­ships us­ing Siri.
